on to the george washington brigs ever bridge. the bridge scandal for the chris christie administration is about using a public resource. about using the world's busiest bridge as a weapon to apparently inflict some sort of petty political vendetta which still has not been splanld. at least at this point we haven't seen the profit motive. it is the investigation into that scandal, the thousands of pages of documents that have been handed over and the intense investigative scrutiny from federal prosecutor and especially from the media that has uncovered a newly sordid picture of you how it works. it is not just in camden, not just the bald old days. it is in the richest agencies of the state. and yes, it is different than having numbs write about your blatant issues. the problem of polluted governance in new jersey is the same. we got newly unredacted documents today from the new jersey legislature. these same documents that we had earlier. we just have fewer things blacked out with a sharpie marker. one of the lines that used to be blacked out but is not anymore is this one. it is in the middle
knowledge that chris christie had. it is not about the governor. it's about people revery close to him, bridget kelly principlely? >> the hard thing here and this has been the case since we heard about bridget kelly and david wildstein and the ft. lee traffic closures, the best case scenario, he not only hired people that would engage in this political payback and joke about it before engaging in it but he also didn't know senior members of his staff were engaging in it. that's the best narrative for chris christie that preserves chris christie as a 2016 candidate. anything else -- this isn't it -- anything else that comes out that suggests his knowledge likely dooms him as a 2016 candidate. it's a bad -- his choices are between a bad storyline and worse story line. >> to give you a taste from the e-mails, one from bridget kelly about this rabbi who apparently he and wildstein were feuding on port authority. kelly said, we cannot cause traffic problems in front of his house, can we? wildstein responds, flights to tel aviv all mysteriously delayed. it's certainly not a pretty picture an

from washington, d.c. tonight's lead, new documents in the chris christie bridge scandal revealed. we're learning more about the actions of key christie aides and allies before, during, and after the lane closings. the information comes from david wildstein. the former bridge official who carried out the lane closings. he's the one who replied "got it" to that now infamous e-mail, "time for some traffic problems in ft. lee." that exchange came to light as part of subpoenaed documents. but a big question has been why did wildstein cross out some material? today the big news. many of those redactions have been revealed, exposing christie aides joking about abusing power. and we have names to go with statements that had been anonymous. a notorious example was the response by an unnamed person to complaints from the ft. lee mayor about children who couldn't get to school. quote, is it wrong that i'm smiling? someone wrote, before adding i feel badly about the kids, i guess. today we learned those comments came from bridget kelly, who is christie's deputy chief of staff and sent the "time

't know that there is that -- anything that ties chris christie to bridgegate in any of these, but what is apparent is that there was a culture, a short hand for enemies and punishment that was used frequently or comfortably by members of christie's inner circle. >> exactly. this kind of varies from the sort of sinister to perhaps more juvenile. in fact, that's the word that some women wisniewski used today in describing this that just shows the sort of cavalier juvenile attitude that bridget kelly and david wildstein seemed to have. i mean, the timing is interesting when -- that august 19th e-mail about traffic problems in front of the rabbi's house sort of echos the language just six days earlier when she wrote the infamous time for some traffic problems in ft. lee e-mail. so she does seem to have a fixation on creating traffic problems. but, you know, to be fair, none of this really sheds a whole lot of light on the core issues here of the use of government power for political retribution by creating traffic problems. >> the refrain, time for some traffic problems for -- insert name
